  1. Love Rick’s cooking delicious recipes!!!
    Please I want to keep a copy to cook them during the summer season !! Thanks

  2. Rick, sometimes there are some huge avocados and my mother had a name for them, how’s, I done recall the name. Do you know what they are called?

    Thank you

  3. I would love to see more Mexican inspired cocktail demos with Lanie please! These are very informative and there is nothing else like that out there. At the very least I would love to see a Friday cocktail demo every week in which Lanie pairs a Mexican cocktail with a dish.

  4. Thanks so much for doing this fantastic informal video series! We’ve learned lots of new techniques from these longer videos and they have been a big highlight of the day!

    April 26: Black Bean Sauced Enchiladas with Chorizo and Salsa Verde
    thank you!

  6. I made the roasted Tomatillo Salsa. I wish I had know how easy it is to make. It’s my favorite. Thank you for generously sharing your knowledge. I wish I could have dinner at your restaurant.

  7. Love your recipes. Please let me know in which cookbook I can find how to make chorizo. I now live in New Zealand and Mexican chorizo does not exist here. Mexican food is what I miss most about not living in California. Thanks.

  8. I love your recipes, I did not know you posted on YouTube I’m so glad, I immediately subscribed. I wish that whoever was taking your videos paid more attention to the sound, lighting and focus or gotten closer to the ingredients and food you cooked. Are you posting any more videos? Try to make your videos less than 40 minutes. Thank you
